1961 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Holiday Coupe Additional Info:

With its upgraded big fuel-injected V8, single-year paint, full custom interior, and adjustable air ride suspension, this 1961 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 Holiday Coupe is the full custom build that no one expected. And once they see it, they'll never forget.
This coupe is striking from every angle. It was the debut year for a sleeker Olds design, and that's been taken one step further any time you decide to let the upgraded air ride suspension really hug the round. In fact, this whole car is a great place to start a custom build. The front end has a wide enough stance to space out the Oldsmobile lettering, the headlights have their own individual pods, and electric shaver style grille has a hint of the Willys coupe vibe. In the rear, the taillights have a cool jet-inspired look, and the bright chrome bumper hugs the shapely form. And the whole car looks fast just standing still thanks to the torpedo-like profile. You can tell they paid attention to bodywork when they were investing in this Olds, and we're especially happy to see a good respray of the factory-correct Twilight Mist. It was a color only available in 1961, and so this unique coupe has unique paint.
The white and gray two-tone interior has an awesome custom and clean look. So we know you'll want to roll down all the windows on this pillarless Holiday hardtop just so people can get a better look. Custom buckets match the rear seats and door panels. Even the center console, carpeting, headliner, and dash are all part of the total coordinated presentation. There are some terrific upgrades, like the B&M shifter and full auxiliary gauge package that make this a better driver. And the radio keeps everyone entertained with an AM/FM/CD/XM touchscreen unit that features Bluetooth and full custom sound system. Plus, there's a remote for the air ride controls so you can dial-in the ideal stance without leaving the driver's seat. Even with all these upgrades, this still has the nice vintage feeling that comes from the thin/grippy dual-spoke Olds wheel and gazing at the artfully stylish dash.
The motor has been upgraded to the best Olds had to offer: the mighty 455 cubic-inch V8. This has the clean and tidy appearance like this big powerhouse belonged here since day one. But when you look closer, you also see another terrific upgrade. The Atomic electronic fuel injection system is great for upgrading the performance and consistency. There's even an upgraded aluminum radiator to help keep this updated system running its best. It fires up readily as the wrapped headers add power and rumble to the X-pipe dual exhaust. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, newer bushings, and modern tires afforded by the wheel upgrade all make for a solid cruising package. And don't forget that the air suspension can also be dialed-in for added comfort, too.
This is the fully-built custom that will not only make you go "WOW!" but also everyone else at the car show will, too. It's hard to believe such a unique and rare coupe is available at such an obtainable price. Call today!!!
